A DEADLY EPIDEMIC.
A TERRIFYING RACE AGAINST TIME.
A YOUNG DOCTOR ON THE EDGE...
Dr. Nathaniel McCormick had never seen anything like it before: three female patients, all residents of Baltimore's group homes for the mentally impaired, their bodies racked by a baffling and unstoppable virus. As a young investigator from the Centers for Disease Control, Nate's job is to peer into the lives and habits of the victims...and what he finds chills him to the very bone. Teaming up with an old colleague and former lover, Nate follows a twisting trial of clues to an unimaginable discovery. And as a circle of treachery tightens around him, he is about to confront the most chilling revelation of all--and a past he himself has been desperately trying to escape.
